South Korean boy band EXO will release a repackaged version of its second full-length album, the group’s management agency said Thursday.

The new album, titled “Love Me Right,” has four new songs in addition to the 10 songs on the original second album, “Exodus,” according to S.M. Entertainment.

EXO, which is currently on a concert tour of major Asian cities, is expected to do promotional activities for the repackaged album together with overseas performances.

Only nine of the group’s 12 members remain active after the departure of two Chinese members, Kris and Luhan. Another Chinese member, Tao, has not been participating in the team’s activities since his father posted a letter on the Chinese social networking service Weibo in April indicating the singer’s imminent exit from the team.

EXO topped various charts for pop music, albums and music videos at home and abroad for “Call Me Baby,” the title piece of the second full-length album released in March. It has swept 18 trophies on K-pop programs run by major television networks and cable channels for the same song.

The album also earned the band 95th place on the Billboard 200 albums chart, setting a new record as the highest-charting K-pop album by a male act.

EXO is scheduled to perform in Shanghai on Saturday and Sunday as part of the Asian tour.
